Check ups and a booster

Yesterday Colton and Christopher had their checkups and I am proud to say that both of my children have been fed well and are growing at a positive rate according to the National Center for Health Statistics. But the big news of the day was Colton getting his kindergarten booster shots. He was really nervous and took it pretty well. I think it was harder for me to hold him down while having flashbacks of him and his first shots as an infant! After a few tears and big hug, he bucked up and happily munched on his gummies he chose from the Candy Masterpiece! And afterwards, he told just about every person we ran into about how he got "TWO IN EACH ARM" (said in a deep, menacing voice). He also said how the shots pumped up his muscles (hence the muscleman poses in the pictures below)! He's my brave boy and now he's allowed in the public school system!

Christopher's Stats:
Length- 21 1/2 inches (1/2 inch growth)
Weight- 8 lbs 6 oz (1 lb 2 oz gained)

Colton's Stats:
Height- 43.5 inches (56.61%)
Weight- 42 lbs (56.02%)

love you guys. Christopher is so adorable. I miss Caleb being little, but love him bigger, too. Such a tough little predicament.
